Sheer madness 


Sheer clothing is a huge trend for fall, hell Kim Kardashian has practically been walking around LA almost naked these last few weeks. But this trend can be really scary for anyone plus size or just not comfortable with their body! I wanted to try this trend for a while now but I’ll be honest was too afraid to rock it. Thinking I couldn’t pull it off. Then I realized that being afraid to rock this trend was sheer madness ! So, I just decided to say F what everyone says, F the “rules” and F what society thinks about being proud of your body as plus size women. Let me tell you this is one of my fave looks to date! I feel confident, sexy and chic. Plus I realized that the biggest critic I have was the one in my own head. So go out there, be confident and rock this trend no matter what shape or size you are:)

Flowers for Dreams 


Flowers for Dreams has come to Milwaukee and I couldn’t be more excited! Flowers for Dreams has been a staple floral delivery service in Chicago for the past few years and they are expanding their market to the Milwaukee area. What is so great about this amazing company is that all the flowers are locally crafted, they wrap the flowers in recyclable cloth, the vases are all made of reclaimed materials, the delivery is free and the bouquets are only $35! But the best part about them is that a part of every bouquet sales goes to support a local charity right here in the Milwaukee! How awesome is that! 

Last week I was invited to attend an event thrown by Flowers for Dreams for Milwaukee Influencers to learn about the company and connect with the CEO. The passion behind this company is so inspiring and the bouquets they have are simply stunning. I cannot wait to send these flowers to everyone I know! 🙂

Hair makeover with Roots Salon

 I have to admit, I have let my hair take a backseat priority recently. Which is not ok! But we have all been there,life just gets in the way sometimes and we don’t have time for pampering ourselves. When I let my hair go it get BAD, since I’m a natural blonde, my roots end up looking like grey hair and the ombre turned brassy. So when Roots Salon opened their new salon in Oak Creek in the Drexel Towne Square, I knew I had to run over there and get my hair back in check. 

So when I first arrived at the salon, the girl at the front desk was so friendly, and gave me a tour of the full salon. She offered me something to drink while I browsed some of the top of the line hair care and makeup products for they have for sale. Then it was Autumn to the rescue! She was amazing, I showed her my inspiration pics of a bronde color ( a brown blonde). And she gave me realistic expectations. She was so friendly, funny and made the whole experience fun! 

The results are amazing! The ombre is blended so perfectly, the color is stunning and I love my hair again! Thanks to Autumn and Roots salon for sponsoring my hair change and for helping me to find a new salon home that I will be going to for many times to come. 

Still trending 

One trend that is definitely still trending  in 2017 is off the shoulder. Dresses, tops, jumpsuits, even blazers have been hitting the scene all with shoulders exposed. This Rachel Roy off the shoulder top is just the right pop of color with the added sex appeal of a lil shoulder action. Paired with some black skinny jeans, OTK boots and statement bag and sunnies makes for a perfect outfit!

Tech Less


In this era where technology is in everyones finger tips at any given moment, it is sometimes hard to remember that we need to have times where we break away from the screen and actually have real authentic life moments. It seems everything you could possibly want to do is with the touch of a button , you can shop, date and even become famous just with your screen. I have to admit that I am  notorious for always being glued to my screen, but recently I have been making a conscious effort to break away and have some off tech time. And with this new challenge I have given myself I have found some go to tips on how to make the tech withdrawal a little bit easier. lol

 

Tip 1: Kick Technology out of the bedroom

Plugging your phone into an outlet to charge at the end of the night in an outlet on the opposite side of the room or out of your room completely  will help you not only be tempted to check it but also it will help you to get some amazing sleep . Falling asleep with tech devices or even while watching your latest netflix binge will keep you from getting the best sleep you could possibly get. And with my crazy schedule I need all the prime Z’s I can get.

 

Tip 2: Make phones off limits when your are with Friends

This one was a hard one for me. We all have the habit to get together with friends and our phones are on the table or right next to us. You all check them every time they buzz to see who got that text. This is all taking away from your actual interaction with your loved ones! So keep your phone on silent and in your purse. Actually have a real conversation.

 

Tip 3: Find your zen

Going to  mediate on the beach or floating in a float pod are my go to ways to find my zen. They have sensory deprivation to make you focus on your center and really become more aware. Snapping you out of that fog that too much tech time can give you. Find a way to find your zen.
